Project Fly Home congratulates the people of the Pontiac riding for getting rid of blacklist sympathizer Lawrence Cannon, openly a member of the Conservative Party network and a top 1267-collaborator in Canada.

Mr. Cannon was the Minister of Foreign Affairs when Abousfian Abdelrazik was stuck in the Canadian embassy in Sudan for over a year. During this period, Mr. Cannon, on behalf of the Conservative Party, misled parliament and the Canadian public about the sanctions imposed by the 1267 Blacklisting Regime, asserting that they prevented Mr. Abdelrazik from returning to Canada. The Federal Court of Canada eventually found that Mr. Cannon had breached Mr. Abdelrazik's Charter Rights and acted in bad faith in doing so. As Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Cannon was also directly responsible for applying the 1267 Blacklist Regime sanctions in Canada; an asset freeze and an international travel ban which are imposed on Mr. Abdelrazik to this day.

Mr. Cannon neither apologized nor sought to make amends to Mr. Abdelrazik. On the contrary, lawyers representing him continue to oppose Mr. Abdelrazik's quest for justice in the courts.

Project Fly Home recently reviewed and maintained Cannon's listing on the 1267-Collaborators' list. The Consolidated List of 1267 Blacklist Collaborators consists of individuals and organizations in Canada suspected of collaborating with the UN Security Council's 1267 Blacklisting Regime or of being associated with entities that have engaged in repressive activities - arbitrary detention, torture, blacklisting, racial profiling, etc.- related to imposing this blacklisting regime on Canadians. The Conservative Party and its known leader, Stephen Harper, are also listed entities.
